Happy 12th Birthday, Audra! 

You're my resident crafter.  I enjoy seeing the things you're making.  You pick something new to focus on every now and then, then mass produce, before leaving it for a bit to try something out.  Then you loop back around to an old activity when you decide.   Lately you're working on beading and knotting friendship bracelets.  Combining knots and beads, you've made some unique designs.  You stitched a beautiful dress that looks lovely on you. You've looped back to crochet.  You've done a lot of weaving, although it seems like you've taken a pause on that.  You've soared at rug hooking and dabbled in candle making.  Plus you enjoy drawing faces lately. 

You're always on the go, often upside down. Swimming is your favorite. You enjoy being upside down in the pool, ocean, on land and on the swings.  You run out to the livestock multiple times a day.  All the livestock have names (although do some of the names change?  or maybe I can't keep track).  You are most at home with animals. 

You love to be a friend to others and to serve others.  You delight in sharing flowers, food, homemade gifts.  You make treats for the shelter animals and your own.

Your appetite is hearty for your preferred foods and prefer to not see novel choices.  Literally, you don't want to see it.  If you close your eyes and try it anyway, 9/10 times you enjoy different foods. Eggs are definitely your favorites. 

You're improving on your sleep, you're doing more self care activities without reminders.  You hope you'll conquer keeping your room tidy.  You work harder than most, everyday you try.

Audiobooks and being read to are the most organizing activities you do.  You'd be thrilled to have some sort of audio blaring 24/7.  Silence is undesirable.  

You're learning and growing everyday and I am so proud of the leaps you've accomplished over the last year.  Here's to a new year!  

Love, Mama
